Father-daughter art exhibit honors indigenous peoples
by Press release

“Sin-Ama,” meaning father and child, is an exhibit by Baguio artist Ged Alangui and his 10-year old daughter, Sakura. The show pays homage to and celebrates Indigenous People’s Month this October.

The show, which opened on Sept. 30, will run until Nov. 10 at the Victor Oteyza Community Art Space (Vocas) with OMG Artist Café as co-host and sponsor.

For Ged, who started in the visual arts in the 1990s as a self-taught artist, Cordillera heritage and culture has been a lifelong inspiration and since then has exhibited in many places including Japan, Singapore, Korea, China, Australia, Hawaii, and England.

It has been a personal crusade for Ged to document a proud heritage and a cultural past that he thinks has defined the Igorot identity. He passes this crusade on to his child as both of them dedicate the art exhibit to the indigenous peoples of the Cordillera.

Included in the show are some of his early works and a few recent ones. Ged’s latest project was the Pasig River Art for Urban Change by the Metro Manila Development Authority and the British Council Manila.

His daughter, Sakura, the fourth of five siblings, started drawing and painting when she was still small. She feels lucky to have an artist for a dad, whose studio has been a playroom for her and her siblings, fortunate they are enough to have their dad’s art materials at their disposal.

Currently a grade five student at the University of Baguio Laboratory Elementary School, she loves listening to music, reading, watching anime, drawing and painting on weekends. Many of her school homework and assignments require some illustrations or pictures. “It sure is handy to be able to draw instead of cutting pictures from magazines,” said Sakura, whose teachers and classmates appreciate this and it makes her happy.

Sakura usually uses color pencils. She said they’re cheap and easy to use but since three years ago, she has loved watercolor so much, and her favorite technique is wet into wet. She finds it amazing when colors blend on their own in water and she enjoys doing wash backgrounds using the water where she rinse her brushes, calling this ‘dirty water’.

She is currently learning how to compose artworks using the rule of thirds. The event is her 7th art exhibit.
